iowait tripled after reboot with kernel 6.2.16-5 on pve8

does anyone have any idea why my iowait suddenly tripled after the machine rebooted with the new kernel?


this system is single node running on a single 1tb nvme m.2 drive with lvm-thin.
iowait was always averaging around 2%, but suddenly its 6.x% without any visible reason.
i would like some advice on this.
